Reyes Not That Aggressive

A quick stat pointed out by Gary Cohen during the Mets broadcast yesterday had to do with batters and 2-0 counts.

In 2007, Barry Bonds led the NL in 2-0 counts with 146. Albert Pujols was second. In sixth place, surprisingly enough, was Jose Reyes — a testament to his increased patience and improved strike zone judgment.

By the way, David Wright was seventh. The total numbers weren’t announced on air, and I’m not sure how to find them without an Elias Sports membership.
